Tales of a Married Gamer – The End

Greetings and welcome to another Tales of a Married Gamer. Yes, that is how I started about a hundred of these articles, and I figured it would be a fitting way to begin this article which will be the last regular article in this series. To date, I have written 111 Tales of a Married […]

Tales of a Married Gamer – What We Bought

Are you a contributor to our Patreon campaign which helps to pay writers/podcasters/editors like… well, myself and the other (much more) talented individuals who share their content on our website? Have you wondered what we do with all of that cash that goes into our account (minus taxes, fees, expenses for running the website, etc)? […]

Tales of a Married Gamer – Cultural Exchange

If you are reading this in America, you are probably a few days removed from the food coma which we tend to call Thanksgiving. While I have celebrated Thanksgiving in a variety of ways in a number of countries, I have to say that the most unique ones I have taken part in were all […]

Tales of a Married Gamer – Community Relations

Lately, I have been traveling a lot, and I am actually writing this about 12 hours before I head off to brave the masses of people who will be trying to head home for the Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S. As everyone goes running off, it often leaves me with a free week of […]

Tales of a Married Gamer – Banter

There you are, sitting around the table with your friends on a Friday night. The only thing that stands between you and a weekend of sitting at home arguing with people on the internet about whether Luke Skywalker is still alive is the Klingon Bird of Prey which has just de-cloaked right in front of […]

Tales of a Married Gamer – It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over

There are 32 minutes until the Chicago Cubs start play against the New York Mets in the National League Championship Series. Wait, wait, wait. Do not close this tab, I have a reason for talking about sport today, other than the fact that I am Cubs fan (go ahead and include all of your jokes […]

Tales of a Married Gamer – A Different Viewpoint

When I am teaching students, one of the hardest things for me to do is to get them to think about things from a different viewpoint. It is not that they are against doing such things, it is just hard to get people to alter how they approach and think about things in life. It […]

Tales of Married Gamer – The Hammer

Every once in a while, I will get on a hot streak playing games, and I will get cocky. You remember when Luke Skywalker shot down his first TIE Fighter in A New Hope and he started celebrating? Then Han Solo told him to not be so cocky and blew up one himself? Yeah, that […]
